@Deejayelle: I recently decided to stop taking the pill, but it hadn’t cost me anything in the last year or so because of obamacare.

I used to pay $76 a month(!) for the pill. I have some issues with cysts so I was on a higher dose BC. Now, thanks to good insurance it’s free 🙂

$0 my insurance pays for due to the Health Care Reform.  But I stopped taking it in Sept since we are trying for baby #2

My birth control pills were free with my insurance plan. The most I ever spent was $60/month for a short time in which I was without insurance and was too stubborn to switch to a cheaper brand of pills.

I’m pregnant now so I don’t have to spend money on any of that now! I used a Diva Cup for the last ten years which works out to having cost 20 cents per period!

I have no clue.  I am on my second Paragard IUD, which last 10 years.  The first time, I paid about $25 (co-pay) and that lasted 10 years; the second time it was $75, and that was over a year ago.  They’re kind of pricey without insurance.  I googled it, and it was between $500-$900.

Before Obamacare, I paid $10/month for the pill. Now I don’t pay anything for it.

I don’t pay anything right now because of my dads health insurance plan still being willing to cover me but without the insurance it is about $22/month for pills.

@Deejayelle:  It’s been about 4 years since I was on Alesse, but it was costing me $20/month.
